Downloadable Sewing Patterns

Free downloadable patterns from BurdaMode magazine.
Free registration joining the Burda Community required. Use the Register button.
Filling out the profile is a little different than the standards we use here.
1. The address will want street name in the first box, house number in the second. There wasn't enough space for all my numbers.
2. Postal code and city are the same way. I entered zip code in the first box and city, two letter state abreviation and USA.
3. Date of birth is day, month and four digit year.
Fill out the rest of the profile, click OK. A screen for your profile will come up. Then click the downloads tab. The free patterns will be at the top of the list. The "how to download and print", link only brings up a blank; perhaps there isn't one in English. The "instruction" downloads do work.

These patterns and instructions may look more complicated than they are.
For instance, the beret does not have a printable pattern. It is simply two circles of prequilted fabric with a head sized hole cut in the center of one of the circles. Deceptively simple.
